The planned launch on 18 October 2021 of the Department of Foreign Affairs' new Temporary Off-site Passport Services (TOPS) Davao, located at SM Lanang Premier in Davao City, has been postponed. Applicants who have confirmed passport appointment slots at TOPS Davao will be informed of their new schedule via email.
During the preparations for the opening of TOPS Davao, all personnel have recently been exposed to, and are considered close contacts, of a Covid-19 positive colleague. As such, the entire team will undergo the prescribed quarantine period, in observance of existing health protocols.
The Department requests the public's continued understanding as it adheres to the prescribed measures against the COVID-19 pandemic for the safety of its applicants and personnel. END
